About Us

Who we are

Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) is a charity dedicated to getting the best for other charities and their donors. Founded in the United Kingdom in 1924, and in Australia in 1999, we are committed to facilitating the most effective and efficient ways to connect donors to the causes that matter to them and for money to get where it's needed.


For companies, we provide advisory and consulting services on Corporate Community Investment strategies, back office administration and ongoing management of workplace giving programs, corporate matched giving, community grants programs and the management of corporate foundations.

For charities, we provide donation processing, freeing them up to concentrate on their most important work of helping the communities they serve, as well as advice and training to help build their fundraising income.

Making an impact in the charitable sector is what drives us.

CAF Australia has distributed over $100 million to more than 3000 Australian and international charitable organisations in just over 10 years. Worldwide CAF granted $580 million to more than 50,000 not-for-profits in 130 countries; and in the UK over 20,000 charities bank with the CAF Charity Bank.

CAF brings donors and the community together for mutual benefit, providing cost effective programs for businesses, government, families and not-for-profit organisations.
